I understand and can respect this. I still don't agree with it, because anyone who would want to abuse links can easily do it already and whether JD shows urls or not, it will have no impact on people abusing URLs. The only people this affects are people like me who want to use it when plugins a broken.

No problem. I don't disagree all I'm saying is you guys aren't preventing anything because someone like me who has very, very limited insight on anything to do with coding can bypass this in less than 10 seconds, so there is no point.

I don't know how to do this, but like you said here to reiterate my point, people can easily abuse it, so blocking links is only small inconvenience for casual users like myself, not doing anything to people trying to harm sites.

I knew this already from searching and reading the forums a while back. I appreciate that you guys have shown leniency on this issue in the past.

There is no real protection against this.
I'm not familiar with Wireshark, but like I said earlier, I can reenter the links into JD, completely unprotected using a .bat file in under ten seconds, so it's not really an issue for me considering the workaround is so quick.

Thank the "focus" gods for shifting your attention. All hail the "focus" gods.

Thank you for all the answers, psp. I really appreciate it. I respect the team's decisions, but I hope in the future you guys reconsider and add this feature in the advanced settings, so only a few people find and use it. Happy New Year!!!
